I have been working on my new logo and these are the ones that I have come up with so far. I really want the design to be the focus and the colors will change with each collection and got packaging thus way the overall design will stay the same but the color will help the design to fit in each collection.
This is an art journal spread that I wanted to share today. It is truly a mixed media piece. I started with a page that I already had painted with Deco Art Media Gesso
and let dry for a while. (A couple of days at least, I like to work in steps and will add Deco Art Media Gesso
or base paint to the pages and let them dry for a while and them come back to them later). I then picked three colors of Aqua Marker
that complemented each other and just added color to the page and than some water to let the run and bleed into each other.
After I let that layer dry for a while I went back and removed even more of the Aqua Marker color from the page so that I would just have a hint of the colors on the page. I took some Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylic Paint
in colors that Complement the original colors and painted circles on one side of the spread and a border of triangles on the other side.
I then sketched in the words "Be The Light" with a pencil and went over it with the Aqua Marker
and they were really too light for the job so I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils
to darken the letters and widen some of the strokes.

I still working on my project for MATS Bootcamp. So , I really wanted to share some of the other designs that I have worked up.
This is a floral design based on a flower brooch. I used the color pallet that we were given and added a couple more colors and I thought made the designs pop.
This design is more of a fun design that I thought would fit in the tween market. I used the same color palette and I might try the same design with different colors just to see how it will change the feel of the design.
I am prepping my supplies and getting ready to start the MATS Bootcamp on January 5. Even though the class hasn't started we were given some great tips on how to prepair our workspace.
I am working on getting everything ready to start class so that my desk will be neat and organized and everything will still be in easy reach. I got this three tiered rolling cart at Michael's during one of their daily specials. I holds a lot and is very sturdy.
